    Estate sale BGE for $200.

    First post, longtime lurker. Suffering from advanced MCS.
    Estate sale, professionally conducted. Second day, last Saturday, signs posted "Discount Day".
    Large BGE, current version, with heat plate, pizza stone, cover, stand, side shelves, 1 1/4 bag BGE lump. Tagged $450. Decided to offer $300.
    Following my rule never to bid against myself, "What is your bottom dollar on that green grill?" "Well, I would like to get $200." Slight pause. "I could do that, if everything is included."

    Not gloating. Well, maybe a little. Willing seller, willing buyer.
    AR and these channels are great.
    Cheers from Yakima, WA.

        What will be your first cook?

      First cook was Meathead's meatloaf, yesterday. It was fine. I have been doing dry runs to sort temp control. Have more experience with pellets and gas.

        Once you have it figured, a BGE will hold temperature rock solid, within a degree or two, until it runs out of fuel. No controller needed. Nice score!

            The very rare green.

          Awesome deal!!


            Ceramic Grills like the BGE can last along time, but remember when you are buying new there is a lifetime warranty on the ceramics which doesn’t carry over to buying used. I think $300 would be a good buy, $200 would be a steal. $450 might be a little on the high side, which is still much lower than what the typical person tries to sell their used one.




                Gloat, gloat, gloat, then feel good, yessir!

                  He might choke on a gloat caught in the throat,

                So, the takeaway here is that an MCS induced seizure can be therapeutically treated with cash.


                  Congrats - great find.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  3 burner gas grill

                  The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
